Well, I am sorry that this post from long ago
generates such a sardonic responses. I would like to delete all of these messages if I CAN HAVE IT DONE (my heavens, passive voice again!) To the individual who posted his remarks, I have a question for him? Has he ever tried to write literary poetry and novels? Has
he ever given himself over to that difficult quest? Does he at least attempt writing something of merit,regardless of the outcome, or does he spend his time writing such silly attacks on the quality of a messages submitted to forums? I believe that the initial messages WERE WRITTEN (passive voice again) so that I might get some help in editing the work

I counted 250 messages that were posted by Ridetheory all of which were cursory comments with egregious punctuation. I guess there are those who spend their days posting things

Yeah, my punctuation is just awful. I'm lucky most of my sentences end with periods.

I am sorry if you took my original post badly. When you write a press release, it's best if you have someone else proof it for you.
